Hiring a roofer can be difficult, but by following a few key steps, property owners may be assured that they are hiring the finest roofer for their unique roofing needs.
EXPERIENCED ROOFERS WITH EXPERIENCE IN YOUR TYPE OF ROOFING SYSTEM
Roofing contractors abound in your neighbourhood. However, not all roofing professionals are knowledgeable about your particular roofing system. Residential roofers should have GAF, CertainTeed, Owens Corning, IKO, and Atlas Roofing certifications. A commercial roofer should be knowledgeable with all forms of flat roofing and accredited by companies like Carlisle Syntec, Sika Sarnafil, GAF, Versico, and MuleHide, among others. Inquire if the roofing contractor you’re considering has experience installing the specific style of roof you want. When answering this question, be specific. If you want to instal a metal shake tile roof, for example, ask the roofer if they have truly installed a metal shake tile roof rather than just a metal roof. The preparation and installation requirements for various roofing systems might vary greatly. Heavy designer shingles, TPO roofs, slate roofs, tile roofs, and any other style of roof are all affected in the same way. You want to pick a roofer who has experience installing the type of roofing system you want on your home or company!
ROOFING CONSTRUCTION EXPERIENCED

In today’s market, the roofing industry can be lucrative, and it draws people who are good at marketing and want to operate a successful business, but they aren’t necessarily roofing experts. Ask specific questions when hiring a roofing company, such as: • Are they up to date on current codes and building requirements? • Are they certified with the roofing manufacturer for your specific roof? • Have they inspected your current ventilation system? Did they discuss ventilation options or improvements? • Will they use actual starter strip and ridge cap • Will they replace all pipe jacks and roof accessories • Will they remove the old shingles and start with a clean roof deck
